  • Stargirl


    Stargirl is the story of Leo Borlock and Susan "Stargirl" Caraway, two students at Mica High School in small-town Arizona. Mica is a staid and conformity-driven environment, and the arrival of the homeschooled Stargirl shakes things up in a variety of ways. The story deals with the school's rejection of Stargirl, her attempts to assimilate, and her fledgling romance with Leo. At the close of the novel Stargirl leaves and the two break up, feeling confused and unsure about their futures and their places in society.
